Wedding photography at Curradine Barns – Holly & Adam

Weddings at Curradine Barns are always special. In my years of being a wedding photographer at Curradine Barns, I’ve noticed something. I’ve noticed that the couples that get married here have something in common. They want their wedding to be full of their personalities, for the day to feel relaxed, to be able to chat and laugh with friends and loved ones, to be able to catch their breath and take it all in and whilst photography is of huge importance to them, they want to enjoy the day to the max and that joy captured, so that when they look back on their photos in years to come, they’ll remember not just what it looked like but what it felt like to be back there. These are my favourite weddings. Holly & Adam’s wedding was perfect, it was true to them and I loved every minute of it. If you’re having a wedding at Curradine Barns and want beautiful, heartfelt photography, do get in touch, I’d love to hear what you have planned.

Alrewas Hayes Wedding Photography – Melissa & Nathan

I was photographing a beautiful wedding at Alrewas Hayes just last week. Being back reminded me how much I love this venue in the Autumn and of a gorgeous wedding I shot last year, that somehow I missed blogging. I flippin love Autumn! It’s my favourite season! The grounds at Alrewas Hayes are beautiful and any time of year but in the Autumn, the colours put on a real display. I’m not sure how I didn’t get round to blogging Melissa & Nathan’s wedding (slapped wrists) so I thought I’d share it now, in all it’s Autumn glory. These two were so much fun and didn’t stop laughing all day. They celebrated with such a great bunch of friends and family. Melissa looked amazing in her lace, long sleeved wedding dress and Nathan very dapper. I loved their styling of copper and lots of foliage and have to mention their wedding cake – wowzers! It was the biggest cake I’ve ever seen and was expertly made by Meliisa’s Mum. The detail on it was amazing. Here are some of my favourite photos from their day.

Iscoyd Park Wedding Photography|Shropshire Wedding Photographer

It was lovely to be back at Iscoyd Park again for Lauren & Dale’s Shropshire wedding. It was a beautiful, bright sunny day, which started with the girls getting ready in the bridal suite at Iscoyd Park, having their hair done by Vicky M Hair and make up expertly applied by Jessica Mair The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Church, in nearby Whitewell, such a pretty church, with the loveliest lady Vicar, who always makes everyone feel so welcome. After some serious confetti throwing we all headed back to Iscoyd Park for a drinks reception in the sunshine. Lauren looked absolutely stunning in her Pronovias wedding dress and Dale looked incredibly dapper in his suit from Clements & Church.

Hampton Manor Wedding Photography – Jessi & Jamie

Hampton Manor is one of my favourite Midlands wedding venues, it’s a beautiful place just outside Solihull that never fails to deliver. Stunning architecture, a mix of contemporary and classic interior design, gorgeous grounds to wander and amazing food! No wonder Jessi and Jamie chose it for their wedding venue. Theirs is a story of transatlantic romance. Jamie is in the army in England, Jessi lived in Florida. Their story began when Jamie walked into the last bar that Jessi went into for one of her girlfriends hen night. As they say, right place, right time! Months of Skyping and transatlantic visits followed, before they realised they couldn’t be apart. Jamie proposed, Jessi moved to the UK and wedding plans began. Both loved the book ‘The Secret Garden’ and loved the idea of an English afternoon tea, so this was incorporated into the day. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a dog lover, so I did a happy dance when I saw that their dog, Oreo, joined them for a photo, looking very smart in his tweed waistcoat. Karen at Passion for Flowers worked her magic with books, moss, ferns and roses to give the room a real enchanted feel and Ben the Cake Man, created the spectacular cake. I loved the fact that Jessi had two dresses, one for the daytime and then a shorter one so she could dance later in the evening. Just as Jessi’s Dad began his speech, he was interrupted by the best surprise ever! Jessi is a big Musical Theatre fan, Les Miserables being her favourite. Without her knowing Jamie and organised a local amateur dramatics society to interrupt the speeches and begin a performance of some of her favourite songs, her reaction was incredible! I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. I flipping loved this wedding and was made to feel so welcome, Jessi and Jamie’s families and friends were my kind of people, warm, funny and full of life. As always the team at Hampton Manor did a brilliant job of looking after everyone, including me. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer for your Hampton Manor Wedding make sure you get in touch.

 

 

 

Doddington Hall Wedding Photography – Daisy & Chris

Daisy & Chris chose Doddington Hall & Gardens in Lincolnshire, as the venue for their relaxed, country wedding, last year. After a week of rain, we were treated to a gorgeous sunny day. Daisy and Chris poured lots of personal touches into their day, Daisy created the place settings herself, her Brother designed the stationery and her Mum was responsible for all of the flowers (she enjoyed it so much she’s now set up her own floristry business). Chris is a keen cyclist so bikes were incorporated into the their day, on the stationery and the couple used a beautiful vintage bike with a basket filled with beautiful flowers (hired from Pretty Little Extras). There was even a bike sneaked into the cake, which was lovingly made by Daisy’s Aunty at Chocckywoccydoodah, it really did look too good to eat! It was a gorgeous wedding with wonderful, warm, friendly people. Thanks for having me along. Here are some of my favourites

Curradine Barns Wedding Photography – Louise & James

I feel so lucky to share such amazing days with people like Louise & James. A couple who on their wedding day were totally themselves – laid back, laughing a lot and simply loving every single minute of their day. Louise’s laughter was so infectious, definitely one of my smiliest brides yet. I know I’m stating the obvious but it’s so important to just forget all the things you’ve stressed about in the planning stages/run up to your wedding and just ‘switch off and go with it’ on the day, that way you’ll have the best time and it will show in your photos. As always Curradine Barns were magnificent hosts and the weather was glorious, all in all this was a perfect wedding. Here are some of my favourites.

Birtsmorton Court Wedding Photography – Suzanne & Stuart

Birtsmorton Court Wedding

My day with Suzanne & Stuart started with Suzanne and the girls popping open the fizz. As soon as Suzanne’s make up was finished by the lovely Hayley Thompson, her Dad arrived and saw her in ‘the dress’ for the first time, always such a lovely moment. I left the girls to have a short time to chill before the ceremony and set off to see Stuart and his Groomsmen arriving at the church, which is in the grounds of Birtsmorton Court. It’s lovely being able to walk to church and before long Suzanne walked arm in arm with her Dad through the grounds and into the chapel, to a beaming Stuart. I always think if you’re going to have confetti, have plenty, well Suzanne & Stuart certainly had that and after some hilarious, rather enthusiastic confetti throwing, everyone made their way over to the main house for drinks and canap├ęs on the lakeside terrace. Even though we had a few showers on the day, everyone was so happy and certainly didn’t let a bit of rain spoil that, they simply put their umbrella’s up and carried on enjoying each other’s company and the gardens. Suzanne and Stuart are like all of my couples, really relaxed, fun, friendly people, so it was like being with friends as we wandered the grounds – they got to take some time out and just be together and I got to take some lovely, natural photos of them, win-win. The guests were treated to hilarious speeches and entertained after dinner by the fabulous Christian Fletcher and his close up magic, before partying the night away.

Danesfield House Wedding Photography – Andrea & Sam

I’d been so looking forward to Andrea and Sam’s stunning wedding at Danesfield House ever since Andrea got in touch. Having met Andrea and Sam over four years ago at her Mums wedding, it was so lovely to hear that they were getting married and that I’d have the chance to spend some time with their wonderful families again. Being able to have a relaxed day to enjoy with their family and friends was really important to Andrea and Sam, so they knew my style of photography would fit perfectly with their plans. The day was full to the brim with fun, laughter and packed with emotion. Andrea and Sam are such warm people and full of fun, it’s easy to see they’re clearly adored by everyone, it was a pleasure to be their wedding photographer at Danesfield House. Andrea started the day getting ready with her Mum, friends and Maverick their French Bulldog, who looked adorable in his flower garland and tux. Once Andrea was in her stunning Galia Lahav couture dress, her Mum and family performed ‘the red scarf blessing’ a Cypriot/Greek tradition to bless the bride before her ceremony. I then headed to wait with Sam and the rest of the guests for her arrival to the ceremony in the stunning Versailles Suite. The day was finished off with a surprise firework display and a greek dancing, such a brilliant day!
